Flat out: WinXP, Linux and OSX are those of main interest right now.
The OSX porting process was started, but I guess some things are not
yet ready, because it has not yet appeared. I guess Carl is not
finished fighting the module design. (Doesn't help with Gabriele and
Cyphre busy with QTask... grrr :-))
I believe that some ports will be maintained internally by RT while
others will be 3rd party ports and I think also it will be important
to make the porting process very smooth and extremely well
documented, because this is essentially a "build it and they will
come" effort. If the process is smooth enough, more people will be
able to port R3 to their platform.
